Aardvark Daycare Services
A Veterinary-Supervised Stay and Play
Aardvark Daycare - What Makes Us Different?
We offer daycare services for all dogs, regardless of size or breed.
Our vaccination and fecal testing protocol is comprehensive reducing the probability of your dog bringing home a medical issue.
Each dog is temperament tested with the dogs already in our pack to reduce the likelihood of an issue with another playmate.
While the necessity is uncommon, we are have a veterinarian on-site and a specialized team of experienced veterinary support staff who are fully equipped to accommodate all of your pet's needs should they arise.
Please note, in the case of closure for bad weather, we make every effort to reach our daycare families the evening before. We will typically send a message though our Pet Desk app and closure information is also posted on our hospital Facebook page.
Daycare will be CLOSED
Guidelines & Requirements
All dogs must be on a flea and tick preventative and free of parasites (fleas/ticks). All dogs are inspected upon entry to our facility, and if parasites are found they will be treated with Capstar and Revolution at an additional cost to you. They will be removed from the play group and may not return to daycare until flea-free.
All dogs must have a negative fecal test within last 3 months. A copy of testing is required. If a dog in our daycare pack is found to have a positive fecal or tests positive for a parasite all dogs in the pack must be tested. Aardvark will not cover the cost of this testing. Dogs testing positive may not return to daycare until the 3 month treatment protocol has been completed and the fecal testing is negative.
Must be a minimum of six months old and spayed or neutered.
All dogs must be in good health - no coughing, vomiting, or diarrhea at least 48 hours prior to arrival to daycare.
All dogs arrive on a leash and wearing a collar. If using a retractable leash, it must be in locked position.
All dogs must have current PA state dog license on file with us. The PA dog warden does routine inspections at all kennels regularly, and if your dog does not have a current license you will receive a citation with fine. Aardvark Animal Hospital is not responsible for any fines issued to the owner by the PA State Dog Warden.
All dogs must have the following vaccines up to date:
Rabies (certificate necessary)
- Canine Influenza
*Proof of current vaccinations, (including rabies certificate), PA State Dog License and fecal results will be required.
If your dog requires medications during the day they must be in original containers with dosing instructions.
In order to ensure the happiness and well-being of our guests, all dogs desiring to participate in daycare activities must undergo a temperament test. Only after successful completion of evaluation will they will be allowed to join our play group. In the event that a dog does not pass our testing, they will not be allowed to participate in our group program. However, they are always welcome to board with us with individual or one-on-one play time.
